Workshop Series Speakers
Partner, Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz
Brian G. Murphy is a partner at Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz, an entertainment and media law boutique with offices in New York and Los Angeles. Brian represents some of the best known brands, advertising agencies, and media companies in the world, helping them with every conceivable issue that comes up when developing and producing content and advertising programs. His practice focuses on copyright, trademark, right of publicity/right of privacy, false advertising, unfair competition, defamation, and issues pertaining to SAG-AFTRA and the other entertainment guilds.
He speaks at tons of conferences (invite him, and he will probably come), contributes to his firm’s popular Advertising Law Blog (which you really should subscribe to), is a member of lots of IP and marketing organizations (because he is a self-identified IP geek), and is too modest to tell you about all the recognition he has received over the years … not only from his parents, but also from numerous, prestigious legal publications (and figures that anyone who cares about that sort of thing can Google it).
